Today is the day where I am put to my own test. My comfort zone is thrown out along with life’s mess.
I have stood in my own way and purpose long enough. I am taking a leap I know will be tough.
I’ve feared I am weak when in fact I am strong. So the improv-comedy star I thought for sure I would be yells “The Show Must Go On!”
“Carry on and chin up” my dad would smile and say to do. And for that very reason I will do it for you.
I will carry on his legacy of a joyful, happy heart. I will try from my little place on earth to pull through with my part.
With your help I will choose to brave each storm I face, with hope and with joy, and a smile on my face .
We are given the choice and our own power to think… So my choice is to face life’s stormy times with a wink.
I can’t control the wind but I can adjust my sails. Because I know for a fact you and I are not sent here to fail.
In order to find my joy I remember rainbows come through rain. I will write and spread my hard-earned hope to ease somebody’s pain.
I know for a fact miracles can and do exist. I have seen them in my own life and know they happen to uplift.
85 days put in 85 ways is my hope to have 85 lives feel a touch of joy in some way . Today is the day my dad would be 85- so like him, I CHOOSE JOY, and hope to cheer up this ride called life.
